Excerpt: Apple the company that always thinks ahead of everyone else didn't on this one. This would have gotten a five. I shouldn't give it a three. I bought this for convenience. My Ipod need a charge when I received it. I plugged it in and went to bed. I awoke at 4: 30 to hit the gym with my charged Ipod.
